Redickville was a small farming hamlet and stopping place located in Dufferin County. First settled in the 1850s, it was named for its founder, George Redick, an early settler in Melancthon Township.

Redickville grew up around George Redick’s hotel, which was frequently used for township council meetings during the 1860s. At its height the hamlet contained the hotel, a store, a post office, school and church. Tradesmen included a blacksmith, mason, two carpenters and a well digger. The population peaked at around 100.

By the mid-20th century, small farming hamlets like Redickville had pretty much run their course as people migrated to larger centres.

Today Redickville continues to support a handful of residents and one business, a convenience store. The schoolhouse still stands and is now a private home. Learn more
